CPU: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/29-4intel...-cache-34x-
Motherboard: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/asrock-z7...i-d-hdmi-a
Memory: http://www.scan.co.uk/products/16gb-(2x8...ered-cas-9-

Don't know if you need a cooler or not, but if you do then this is beast for overclocking
Cooler: http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Component...ctId=53257

Total WITH cooler: £468
Total WITHOUT cooler: $407

Shit must have made a mistake, i'll update the link for the cooler with a link to aria, as the scan website is being slow as shit right now.

That motherboard has the second highest review rating on revoo. If you wanted to spend around £150 on a motherboard, go for the MSI Z77 MPower again i'll link this below.

Some other sites to compare prices with are (There may be more):

Go for the H80i watercooler instead, thicker rad and fans are based off the SP120 corsair fans in push/pull, similar performance to the Noctua but not quite as good

Kenny i got the asus p8z77 v-pro mobo here. Overclocking is easy on it. There is an auto mode on it which does it all for you. It will give you max performance out of your cpu and what it can handle. Has sli and can take up to 32gb ram Smile

Getting another of the same 660ti would work out a lot cheaper and would give you around similar performance dependent on the game.

I use http://hitechshop.co.uk to buy memory and hard drive. Delivery is comparatively fast and price is cheaper.
